Chinese-Nordic Conference

Smart Energy in a Smart City Context

We invite you to join us in finding and developing state-of-the-art solutions for a 100 % sustainable energy system that is flexible, smart and integrated.


The purpose of the conference is to support technology transfer and make new partnerships, which leads to knowledge sharing, new energy projects and state-of-the-art solutions across China and the Nordics.

With this conferenc our goal is to find solutions for growing cities and the need for smart urban development. To do so, we gather world class researchers and innovative companies to find solutions and bridge regional demands regarding ICT, energy technology and urban development.

China and the Nordics are frontrunners for innovative and sustainable energy solutions. We join forces to find state-of-the-art solutions based on best practices from both regions. Together, we can be more innovative – faster. We bridge the demand, support project and product development, promote investments, and support testing opportunities and funding.

About the conference

Smart Energy in a Smart City Context was established last year in order to promote innovation and development and to form a close partnerships between Shanghai and the Yangtze River Delta Region, on one side, and Denmark, the Nordics and Europe, on the other.

The idea is for China and the Nordics to take turns in annually co-hosting an international
academic conference and to facilitate exchanges and discussions between relevant
universities, research institutes, science and technology enterprises -  hereby taking part in the global development focusing on the UN Sustainable Development Goals 7, 11, 13 and 17.

The first conference took place in Aalborg, Denmark, in the historical building of Nordkraft,
which used to house the city’s coal-fired power plant.
